Abstract

Monopropargyloxy-tripropoxy-calix[4]arene 1 was subjected to a propargyl Claisen rearrangement to give unusual calix[3]arene[1]chromene and homocalix[3]arene[1]benzofuran macrocycles. Quantum mechanical density functional theory calculations indicated that an initial [3,3] sigmatropic reaction affords a highly reactive allene intermediate, stabilized by two main diradical pathways leading to six- and five-membered oxygenated rings. In the presence of a n-butylammonium guest, calix[3]arene[1]chromane 6 forms two stereoisomeric complexes stabilized by +N-H···O and cation···πinteractions.
